Hi friends! I hope you all had a great weekend. We had a pretty scary Saturday and had a tornado tear things up within a few minutes from our house. I was pretty nervous as my uncle lives out there as well as a friend. Thankfully they were both fine, but several other families did not fare quite so well.
We had to make a quick meal with all the storms about and this Cajun classic was just the thing. It isn’t very spicy, but you could easily add in some extra creole seasoning if you like. We just had it by itself but red beans would be great with it. Also, we used turkey smoked sausage this time but have used Andouille in this dish before and it is delicious. We also have only used chicken! It’s very easy to throw together.
*Oh, by the way, the pic up there is not representative of how my Jamabalaya usually looks but Mr. Jason decided to add in three cups of water to “help” me lol. It normally isn’t that um, wet lol!! It was still delicious, just a little more mushy than normal! Just a little real life over here!*
I hope you all are doing well and will have a great week. We get to go order our daughter’s class ring Thursday evening and I am so excited for her! If you would like to learn how I make Creole/Cajun seasoning please let me know. We use it in a lot of our cooking and I’d be glad to share it with you. Also follow me here so you never miss a post!
